Korea Cherry Blossom Forecast 2011

The Cherry Blossom expected blooming season in South Korea is out already. Will I get to see the sight above? Hmmm...

In Seoul, it's expected to start on 9th April and reached the peak on 15 April. This is supposedly 3 days earlier than usual as compared to previous years. I really hope that the peak will fall before14th April, our last day in Seoul.

I guess we're lucky to have given Japan a miss this year for Cherry Blossom viewing. Sometime in August last year, I insisted on visiting Japan instead of postponing our trip again 'til Spring 2011. After a tension-filled discussion, bf promptly booked our air tickets to ease the situation.

I'll visit the beautiful country of Japan soon again and will keep them in our prayers during this difficult time.

This week 18th April will be the best week to be in Seoul for Cherry Blossom viewing. When I left Seoul on 14 April, most cherry blossom trees were just beginning to blossom.

We only saw the blooming of some trees. For those traveling this week (18 April week), I'm sure you'll be able to see the full bloom.
